Robert Deniro, Diddy Dirty Money

Robert Deniro, Diddy Dirty Money - Robert DeNiro is in the house, y’all, along with Diddy-Dirty Money. Just as God always intended. Will there be more references to the “Godfather” trilogy or the “Fockers” trilogy tonight? Will Bill Hader bust out his Al Pacino impression so we can finally witness “Heat II: Electric Boogaloo”? Will tonight’s episode be on the same level of quality as “Goodfellas” or “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle”?

So many questions, I know! Only one way to answer them: via a sketch-by-sketch recap. That’s just how we do what we do round here. Onto the show, after the break...

“Cold Open”: I guess Jay Pharaoh will be President Obama when he grabs the impression from Fred Armisen’s cold, dead hands. Luckily, this isn’t an Obama sketch but one about Julian Assange, aka Mr. Wikileaks himself. “Wikileaks: TMZ” isn’t the most original way to take this scandal to the potentially unaware public, but poll “Wikileaks” versus “TMZ” and you’ll understand why they went this way. Still, pretty good as a cold open, save Hillary Clinton in that “Fatal Attraction” shot at the end. Hello, nightmares for a month! [Grade: B]

“Monologue”: So apparently, Robert DeNiro and Tom Brady go to the same barber. Yikes. I guess someone in the writer’s room thought, “Wouldn’t it be funny if native NYC citizen Robert DeNiro got facts about the city incorrect and then intimidates audience members that question his knowledge?” Someone thought wrong. Very, very wrong. [Grade: D-]

“The Abacus Conundrum”: Fun, harmless parody of those over-the-top commercials for James Patterson and other writers that seemingly put out another book every other week. Sadly, I bet a lot of literary agents will start seeing books with these titles submitted to them before 2011 is out. (That being said? I’m curious to learn what “The Pokemon Directive” is.)

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
